Ray Vallee Jr.

Juvenile Justice Ministry Engagement Coordinator

My name is Ray Vallee Jr. I am the new Engagement Coordinator for JJM. I am married to the wife of my youth Laura (together 30 years, married 21 years). We have three daughters Elise, Rochelle and Julia ages 14, 16, and 18. I answered my calling into ministry and received my Masters of Christian ministry degree from Liberty Baptist theological seminary. My wife and I planted a church which closed as of the end of the year 2018 (God had bigger plans for me). I like watching and playing baseball. I like the outdoors, hiking, and the beach. But what I truly like to do the most is disciple people, from explaining who Christ is and seeing them come to repentance and newness of life and helping them grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

I have an outgoing personality and have ministered to a wide variety of people and personalities.

I have many years of experience discipling, teaching, and leading. My career was in senior leadership in the hospitality industry. While I continue to grow in my faith, my experience both in my secular employment, and ministry has brought me to this point and will allow me to have a positive impact within and as part of the team here at Youth for Christ Cleveland, as I strive to create and bring about new partnerships and build upon existing partnerships to the glory of God for his kingdom purposes to bring the love of Christ to a lost and dying generation of youth.

Please join me in praying that God would bring about a revival both in his kingdom people for his service, and for the Youth of greater Cleveland to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
